Weeeeeeeell I never intended to be so silent this long,
but just know life has been really busy for me and my blogging mojo is still very very weak. As it already took every ounce of me to get this post together! ;o)
Thought my blog makeover would help me a bit...but.....
So on top of all of this I have been very very bad......because at the beginning of this year I received a book to review and have yet to do it!! However, I have looked thru it and have already gleaned quite a few tips, and some of the guide charts to be helpful! I will definitely come back to give its proper due!! In the meantime, you can visit her fabulous blog here!
I brought this book up to say with our economy in the toilet and the need to stretch our dollars a little longer it is right on time!!
I have always been big on finding a deal when shopping for clothes, but lately good finds have been wonderful gold mines for me!!
Here is what I have been into lately and over the summer time:
Budget (notice I am not saying cheap) shoes. Not one pair is over $15-$20!!!
See my fake L.ouboutin shoes. :o) Tee hee! And I forgot to put my new burgundy T.ahari in the photo which I just got last night for only $30 bucks! They are baaaad.
And I've recently had this thing for bargain purses from T.arget.com (where they are on clearance) this summer
I rocked the heck out of that off white purse for only $8 bucks!! The other ones were only $10!! Y'all know my love for Tarjay ain't going nowhere! In fact, I need to get some stock in that joint!! ;op Haha!
And my most recent frenzy has been getting budget suits from R.oss for my new job!!! Yay!
Getting great bargain prices for a new business wardrobe has been great! I spent anywhere from $20 (yes you read that right) - $40 for an ENTIRE suit!!! Are you kidding me?!?!? You really can dress for less there! Don't sleep on them now!! I also get all my "formal"/cocktail dresses from there too!
Alright...quick fashion question. I just got this suit on clearance and it is off white
Q: So it is almost the official end of summer, but if I put a black or chocolate shirt underneath it could I still wear it after the 21st?? Put your 2 cents in please! :o)
As far as knitting...nothing to report. :o(
I haven't picked up my sticks in about two weeks now...sigh....pray for a knitting revival over here! Haha!
Make it a fabulous weekend!!
